. >>: secretary of state john kerry plans to meet with russia's foreign minister in paris today. the two men are attending a conference on lebanon. which has been eclipsed by the growing alarm over the standoff in ukraine's crimea region. kerry addressed the situation at a meeting earlier this morning. russia's foreign minister was absent from this morning's meeting, but kerry says he plans to meet with him this afternoon. former irs official lois lerner refuses to testify at house hearing on tea party targeting today once again, lerner invoked her fifth amendment rights -- refusing to testify before the house oversight and government reform committee. lerner's a key figure in the investigation of the i- r-s' alleged targeting of both conservative and liberal political groups. her department is accused of applying extra scrutiny to political groups seeking tax-exempt status between 2010 and 2012 former top i-r-s official, lois lerner, is at a house hearing today on the agency's targeting scandal. once again, lerner invoked her fifth amendment rights -- refusing to testify before the house ov
. >> john kerry spoke to his russian counterpart who denied it was a land grab in the region of ukraine. >> i nevertheless made it clear that that could be misinterpreted at this moment, and there are enough tensions that it's important for everybody to be extremely careful, not to inflame the situation and not to send the wrong messages. >> in the meantime, ukraine's fugitive president popped up for a press conference in russia, claiming he's still the lawful president of ukraine and intends to fight fy to keep it from the pro-fascist mob that took backipower with the backin westerners. there was even a displace of emotion. >> i would like to ask for very has suffered and is suffering. if i were in ukraine, i would bow before all of the victims and meet with their families. >> bret, yanukovych will not have the opportunity to lay any flowers at the graves of those who died last week in all of the violence. he's wanted by the interim government for mass murder, and there are indications they're going to do all they can to extradite him or get him back to ukraine. >> amy, thank you. wend
john kerry calls it an invasion and occupation. just how bad is it and what can be done? we will cover all the angles. vitali klitschko, leader e of the ukrainian revolution, on his country's response to russian aggression. madeleine albright, the former secretary of state, brzezinski zbigniew, the former national security adviser on what the united states can and should do. then, is vladimir putin really the bad guy in all of this? i will introduce you to a very prominent expert who says niet. >>> and foreign policy at the oscars, one of the films up for best documentary tells the story of egypt's revolution brilliantly. i will speak with the director of the movie "the square." >>> but first, here's my take. in a strange act of historical coincidence it was 60 years ago this week that soviet leader nikita handed the premier over to the ukraine. it might not have seen a big deal in those days. everyone was part of one, big, unhappy soviet union. but that has created today's geopolitical crisis. russia has made its move. it has essentially detached crimea from the ukraine government's c
the president made a big deal about the so-called reset. john kerry was also asked about it over the weekend. here is a montage going through it, through 2009. this is the interview yesterday, take a watch. >> we want to reset our relationship. so we will do it together. >> i am somebody who genuinely believes that the reset button has worked and that we are moving in a good direction. >> marco rubio will be on this set, saying that it is time to acknowledge the reset with russia is dead. do you acknowledge that? >> well, i don't know what you mean by the reset? >> the reset that this administration called for. >> i know, but long ago we have entered into a different phase with russia. i don't think this is a moment to be proclaiming one thing or another. >> the reset if i'm correct was the following. the reset was that we give up nothing, except we give up some of our nuclear power. and then of course the concessions we denied the missile defense to poland and the czech republic. and the reset is that the russian president takes on edward snowden. the next red line was syria, and has this t
well in control of crimea. and the question now, and it's something which john kerry is going to be looking at closely tomorrow, on how he can under it, is what russia does next. and the focus will be on this region here, where i am today, in east ukraine. this is the second biggest city in the country, the industrial heartland, kharkov. many people here have been encouraged with what's happening in ukraine and would ideally like the russians to come in here, too. behind me, you probably can't make it out now, but there is a huge statue of lenin under which there is a group of pro-russian protesters. they occupied this and hoisted the russian flag, and in violence between them and kiev government supporters, many dozens of people were injured. today in doniesk, another area, pro-russians occupied government offices there. the fear is that russia is trying to create the sort of chaos and instability here to justify intervening on behalf of the russian speakers. now, not everybody here would be happy to see the russians come. and clearly, one of the key focuses of john kerry's v

from u.s. officials ranging from secretary kerry, secretary hagel right up to the top, right up to the president. you saw his comments yesterday. it is a sobering development. the fact is, u.s. officials were already telling us yesterday that those masked troops on the ground as of yesterday in and around crimea were russian so now you have a public in effect acknowledgment from the russian government that the president wants to send troops in there, this authorization. i think the other point is that you can see this as an intelligence failure by the u.s. officials had been telling us in the last 48, 72 hours that it was their assessment that the russians would not go in, and here you have it happening. it is not the way they did it in georgia in 2008. you remember when russia sent troops into the country of georgia in 2008 in a more sort of visible, tangible invasion, tanks rolling across the border. there are no tanks rolling across the border but you do have a public authorization of force and more of maybe you can call it a stealth invasion, perhaps. you have the helicopter
